WILLIAMSTON, Mich., Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Centurion Medical Products, a leader in medical product innovation and global patient care, is making a major stride in emergency room acute wound management with the launch of its IRIG-8™Wound Irrigation System.
IRIG-8's sterile, disposable system enables clinicians to quickly deliver copious volumes of irrigation solution to acute wounds with customizable, constant, effective pressure. This is a significant improvement to the traditional syringe with splash cap, whose "fill-and-flush" method is tedious, time consuming, and does not achieve constant fluid flow under effective pressure. This lack of adequate pressure may allow organic and non-organic debris or biofilm adhesion to remain, leading to potential infection risk.
"The IRIG-8 System delivers the two constants that are known to provide thorough acute wound cleansing — generous amounts of irrigation solution delivered at optimal pressure, in most cases in less than 60 seconds — which standard bottle splash guards and tedious fill-and-flush syringe methods simply cannot achieve," stated Centurion President and CEO Tom Archipley. "Clinical evidence supports these two factors in achieving optimal results and that is what Centurion is delivering, best practices for the best patient outcomes."
- Quickly delivers high volumes of irrigant — one liter in less than 60 seconds
- Achieves adjustable, quantitative, and dependable pressure at an optimal 8-12 psi
- Decreased bacterial load by 14% compared to the traditional splash cap method in an American Journal of Emergency Medicine study*
- Connects to any style oxygen or medical air outlet flowmeter
- Alleviates clinician fatigue with comfortable, one-handed use
Archipley added, "Working with ED doctors to develop a clinically driven wound irrigation solution was a natural extension of Centurion's mission of continuous improvement. This system's efficiencies can increase throughput while providing the best in patient wound care."
